Double standards from the Rupert Murdoch family and its serfs.

Rupert MurdochBananas or the zoo does not buy Rupert Murdoch products (my blog) but recently i read that bbc three shows condemned by the right wing as ‘shit‘ (my blog) are now on Rupert Murdoch paid tv channels.

Along with another which i never watched so i am confused by this Murdoch logic which seems to be this

paying extra for the television series we hate makes it less shit than before when the bbc broadcast it.

Just you wait when the Murdoch family discover ballroom dancing.  Quite sure that’s communist too until it finds its way to his pay tv.

I have no desire to see either but if your happy with that logic then clearly you must be a very wise fool.  Mind you perhaps i was not supposed to notice.  Oh well

Dhalgren,Samuel R Delany

sloowisbn: 97805750900996 is one of those hard to get books that today would be in three books andwho even other authors do not get.  I aborted this being i too had not a clue what was going on.

I had a theory and could not be bothered to find out if that was right or not. Delany can be readable and coherent.

The pretty people only on youtube problem

somebody also called kate

I CAN READ ! I have big boobies too

I occasionally watch stuff on there and i dont care for the invasion of pretty people there on youtube who simply read an autocue if you want that thing then television has plenty of pretty people reading stories aloud..

I generally watch odd stuff on youtube instead by people know there stuff say electrical teardowns and essential stuff like Thunderf00t whom are knowledgable rather than pretty who have just mastered how read where’s spot and put on make up or not as a ugly person behind the scenes may have done that for them.

spotYoutube has its problems be they mental health patients commenting as part of there day care treatment, copyright maximalists who think youtube is tv (it is not) while featuring the better channels in there content while bitterly complaining about rot on youtube (go figure) and the decline of broadcasting along with the lazy unpaid interns tv uses who found this it for the and the dmca variety which is why youtube is a fickle platform, finally Vic Gundra (my blog) who although he has left means i still dont have a youtube account and i dont desire to get one.

Anyhow its nothing about boob envy, but if want to be mesmerized by boobs and reading to me then the television set in the zoo security office works just fine.

Question when did you last see an ugly tv presenter ?

Professor tells us of the weird world of estate agents

8017591081_de6663633d_bProfessor here in the zoo is moving and he told us apes some very funny stories say he wants two rooms, then a genius sends email of a one room thing its close i suppose  it has a ‘room’ i guess.  So as long it matches ‘room’ the meaning of plural, or singular seems to not understood.

Fortunately these people are famed for not understanding things but professor found a new site and so he wont be staying with us here in the monkey house.  I am sure there will be a party with us apes invited and we are all looking forward to that.

the silent deep,Hennessy & Jinks

public schoolboys only

public schoolboys only

isbn: 9781846145803 is a book read by slow people if you use a library, Hennessy (my blog)  is the trusted public schoolboy and Jinks would appear to be an student of his – very old boy network in navy and civil servant circles.

There is a lot that still cannot be disclosed to our trusted public schoolboys and fortunately neither tackle world war two and start from 1945 rather than fill pages about that although 38% never came back, it is better the the German 75% rate*, but worse than being on a traditional naval ship which was 20%.

Post war naval recruits where press ganged into submarines and the development of nuclear power is interesting in that quality of life was influenced by the us opposed to a spartan existence.

One can make some interesting conclusions here about political thinking which is that the same roles are still the same 70 years later.  Hardly aspirational political thinking there.

Submarines are extremely expensive and something that is also interesting that while shooting down missiles is frowned upon the Russians had that capability to shoot down the old platform polaris.

The technology is interesting although generally the uselessness of some products required like special steel for a project that five things will need in a hundred years is where the authors get too close to what is being said.  Other examples can be found along with a perception that industry and civilians are really useless who regardless fund there fun and games.

The_Sun_(Gotcha)The Falklands section is interesting being a little more balanced that just one side saying stuff.   Although outside of the usual zones unexpected issues of communication come up.  As an international deterrent the locations to service them retain a cold war aspect.

There has been some learning from events and the justification for the continued existence a little tenuous with limited international bases and some traditional weapons added to sweeten the huge cost of a few assets.

The big red button question gets a going over although until there used how truthful either side are remains a point best answered from the future.

Scotland’s (my blog) role in this is opened up for debate although a question of if geopolitics makes it moot, or the specialised jobs needed will probably determine that while the scots may not like nuclear it could be said that the whole system of making and maintaining missile launching boats is a government handout that misfired after most of scotland voted snp but i wonder if international ‘friends’ will impress on them to require such a facility.

Passing the user test

After this (my blog) i created a new non microsoft os (my blog) got the wifi working being one of those strange broadcom chips which even broadcom cannot write drivers for and handed it over.

carnegie

monopolists ahoy

Initial comments are good being described as more modern and it removes the last threat that microsoft will cause the zoo no further problems be they wga, crap operating systems and giving future money to microsoft and its criminal eco system.

I had a good day.

letsencrypt in debian backports

headacheIs now there (my blog kind of) but it only looks at web servers. It also appears to configure the ssl and get you a certificate. However it is a start, if a bit scary for those with working ssl sites.  Backups are probably in order until you know what it actually does and i do not need tls yet.

Pushing the envelope as ever i wanted it for email servers and that s when the plug-in got mysterious and i left it although i actually have a victim lined up.

I will continue to run self certified tls (my blog) on the mail server and look at this in the future.

What is dispiriting is that most people only bother with tls over http rather than everything else. Sigh

A most impressive botnet

minionIn this (my blog) I explored botnets

Most of the existing data remains the same in trend except for this isp in China who is either blissfully ignorant, or quite happy to allow it and which i keep logging.

Whatever the reason i remain ready to keep logging them from Huashu media&Network Limited when this (not here) tells me there are 3,216 spam hosts  so only 3089 entries to go.

An increase of 36 reports.  Some people collect pokemon i collect chinese botnet ip’s. Fun.

The utopia of rules, David Graeber

not seen it

not seen it as seen on tv

isbn: 9781612193748 is an author i have read before (my blog) and waited a good six months to read this small book of 255 pages, being bureaucratic i had to also ask a librarian to recreate my request as the software was broken.

Libraries (my blog) yay.

Anyhow the book reflects on administration and the millions it employs and whom demands this collection when a finger is pointed at regional government and how the post office is the ideal thing to copy with its variant of the united nations despite letters being less of a thing.

It is a dense read but an interesting one 4/5 bananas
